I want to be a living Kidney Donor

One of the greatest gifts you can give someone, is the gift of life. Organ donation has come a long way over the years. New technology, immunosuppressive drugs, and a database make accessibility to organs more efficient of a process. Unfortunately, this does not change the fact that millions of people will sit and wait for organs that never come, some may not live past the waiting process. It is estimated that 2,000 names are added to the organ transplant list every month. Vital organs may never be obtained such as hearts and livers. Kidney donation has a unique opportunity in that donors can be alive and survive on only one kidney.
